08 Phobias

Do you fear an expert's opinion? How about an amateur's? Maybe you have a phobia of your middle school math teacher's "undeniable" proof (memes) that the earth is flat. We wouldn't judge.

In this episode Caitlin shares some hard truths and funny stories about fears and phobias. For instance, Billy Bob Thornton's phobias lead us to believe he's got some beans left to spill. What does he know that we don't? That's our phobia.

Drink of the episode:
